Where the heck did my country go to?

This diary may be shorter than some may like but it needs to be stated. Where is this country headed, and is it headed there in a handbasket? Listen, I'm actually a reformed McCain supporter, but how is this guy seriously doing any of the following: 1). Leading the question of which candidate will keep you safer? 2). Wooing Democrats and women's right's supporters and 3).Scoring 60% favorable ratings. Let's look step by step.
Question 1). We have a candidate who claims to want to keep our troops in Iraq, where even the most ardent supporters state we have most of our resources tied up. So what does a candidate for president do. First, he sings about bombing a sovereign nation for the world to see while running for the highest office in the land. So then less than 6 months later, he responds to a crisis halfway across the world in a matter of hours, as oppossed to waiting for the situation (of no harm to us) to crystalize before shooting his mouth off. This is the guy that is going to keep us safe? Really? Am I missing something? Bellicose is now a peace strategy?
Question 2). Do I really even need to go into what a guy who states he has a 30 year career of opposing women's rights has in store for us? I do, really, I really need to compare Barack and John's plans for women's rights. children's health care to up to 28% of Clinton supporters? I really need to state that for those poor to lower middle class whites in the midwest and south that another 4-8 years of Bush's economic policies is probably not the best idea, g Really, given the current state of affairs? Am I missing something else?
Question 3). A crotchety old man who can't talk issues so he keeps sending out ads comparing his opponent to heiresses and pop stars, who lies in every ad, and who states his opponent only speaks out due to political ambition (says the other dude running for president who as a POW never discusses his POW days, except in every sentence?)
Where is the intelligence in this country? Are people really this content? What am I missing? I even invite the Barack jeering section in here to tell me what's what, please, because I JUST DON'T GET IT!!!
